I Love A Mystery Book Club

This book group meets on the
2nd Saturday of the month at 10:30 AM

Currently, the meetings take place upstairs with stair access only. If you are unable to climb stairs, please contact the library at 207-633-3112 in advance and we will hold the meeting downstairs.

Origin Story:

The “I Love a Mystery” Book Club spun out of a Maine Humanities “Let’s Talk About it Series” called “Refreshing the Whodunnit” that BHML hosted in the winter of 2017.  The group got it’s name from the monthly article that volunteer (and retired librarian) Shirley Sirois writes for the library column in the Boothbay Register.
